potion parasite - mylerThere are many dangers that plague those who travel the Mohkba River, but one of its most insidious is the obscure, nearly microscopic species known as the potion parasite. When a person is infected by a potion parasite trap, the nearly invisible organisms ingest any potions (but not extracts) drunk by the host, negating their effect. Potion parasites are fragile once removed from their outdoor environment, and if not fed a potion (either in a contained environment or while within a creature) within 1d4 days of its last feeding, potion parasites die (at which point a host can resume drinking potions normally).

Fortunately potion parasites rarely infect large swathes of water, and there is only a %1 chance that they inhabit a square of the Mohkba River that a creature is traveling through. However, the creatures often appear in freshwater streams and there is a 5% chance that any water gathered nearby the river contains potion parasites.
